I ordered a stencil online from Maison De Stencils and was excited to have a go with it today. I am really happy with the result and am sure it will be appearing on my furniture projects and soft furnishings before too long!
Below is a large framed picture I won at the Tender Centre for $5. I painted it with blackboard paint and glued the rope around the inside edge for a nautical/beach feel. Now I wish I had a spare wall to hang it on! Guess I will just have to sell this baby.
